Hello, hello, hello, and thank you for tuning into the selling out show, where we screw up life at our leisure or your listening pleasure. I am one of your hosts, David a Schultz esquire, the first and over here is my buddy, my partner in crime and Co host, Nathan Gorezinski. Nate, how are you this fine day? I'm sweaty, sweaty mouth Spaghetti. You're nervous. Not Nervous, just I'm nervous that I'm gonna pass up from the heat. It's summer. It's like mid July. Late July and it's I'm I can't imagine how it is down there, man. I'm up in New England and it's like a hundred two degrees or some ship. The world is burning. The entire world, England is going through a heat problems, advisories, all that stuff. Everywhere is just hot, H it's something else. So, as my ten year old would like to say, it's not global warming, is global burning. Yeah, so that's those kind of jokes that are now passable amongst children. Uh, this is society as we've come to know it. But yeah, it is. It is uh, FE and hot everywhere. So wherever you are listening to this humble little program hopefully you have your piggly wigglies dipped into pool or ice in some regions. That will definitely cool you down. Yeah, yeah, that's our wish. It is bad. So we're too sweaty dudes on the mics preparing a show for the general public, and boy do we have a good one today. Uh, nate, you have dug up some Internet goodies for us to discuss a little bit later on. We also have your nate's notes segment. For those who are fans of the music the HIP beats. Uh, you know, people who like to move and shake and do whatever to the sounds that come out of instruments. That's what they call it, right, that's what they call it. I am so not hip. I am so uncool it hurts, literally it hurts. I'm in pain. Yeah, I'm hip, I'm with it, but nay. I want to kind of make a bold statement to lead off our program today and I want to see what you have to say about it. All right, shoot, man, now you know I'm curmudgeon Lee. I am an older and gentleman. I am in the twilight of my existence. That's fair. I was waiting for you to say no, you are still very young, you have lots to look forward to. Chin up, but no, Hey, an expectation is a premeditated resentment. So if you're expecting me to say something, you're just setting yourself up for disappointment. Wow, where did that come from? I don't know. I I like it, but I don't quite understand it right out of the gate. So I'm gonna have to sit with that, alright, and think about that for a little bit. But that's that's I was thought I was coming with something bold here...

...and you're changing lives a time, turning the tables. Yeah, but I made an observation and that is country, Western music, an anime the same thing. M Hmm. Yeah, you know why? Because it's it's all, I will it's all formulaic. It's all based on the same esthetics and the deviations are few and far between. Now, you know, my kid watches a lot of the pokemon stuff. His friends are into all these like different anime things, and I see him all the animation style is the same, right, oh, the character is gonna cry, make the eyes shake. You know. You know what I mean. The style. If you see the drawings, they're all the big eyed, speaking of eyes, girls and everything else, the small features. So anime really is based on one code, one ethic that you stick to. There is an of me. Right. Yeah, country Western music, as much as they try to infuse different seals of music into it, rock or, God forbid, rap, because you know you don't want them Kyle polkes here in any of that music from the inner city mixed with their you know, cal humping tunes, but still it's following the same, you know formula. Basically, the formulas in uh these are the same so I was listening to country Western music while watching anime and I realized these, these guys are two birds of a feather. Wow, what do you think? I I'm really struck, man. I first of all, this hits close to home because my girlfriend, Carl like, listens to mostly country music, divorce, but but her it's son, Joey, is big into anime, and so those two who things are constantly surrounding me and I never made that connection. This is fascinating. I definitely see it, and I think there are stylistic things in any genre that are constant and that's what makes them fall into a certain category. I believe we've talked on this show several times about how genre like like subgenres and more subgenres just get sickening in music and, I guess, Film and everything. But but yeah, you're right, though. It does get a little ridiculous when you look at one anime and you look at another one that was made years later, totally different storyline, you would think they were the same artists. That didn't almost it's I don't like it. You know, Sir Ray BOP, I don't like it. Same with country Western music, the old C W not for me. I don't have any big belt buckles, so I have no interest in in hearing about drinking beer and breaking up. You're in Texas. Man a giant built buckle or a ten gallon hat? No, but I'm in Dallas. In Dallas is not I think I might have said this to you before, so please stop me. But basically it's like woostern Massachusetts, just hotter. There is a large melting pot of people here in Dallas. This is not ranches and farmland. This is a sprawling urban jungle full of McDonald's, Burger kings and I'm just gonna keep naming fast food places, but you get my point. There's is you know, yeah, it's not. I mean look, I I see a lot of hillbillies too. They're part of the whole crew. But still, we get a wide variety of folks down here. Now I've been really also interested. I'm totally changing the topic now, so if you have anything more to say about it, too bad. Okay, alright, good dream journals, get out of my head, dream police. I've been really interested about how I'm wasting my life and productivity and how I can kind of tick that up a little bit and...

I read someone online, which is the worst place to improve your productivities by being online and reading these things in the first place. But he made he made a point, this guy, who I will not cite or quote accurately, and that was when you wake up in the morning, what's the first thing you do? Yeah, I'm asking you just real quick here. Um, the first thing I do is usually take a big ship. Oh, but what do you do while you're taking that big DEUCE? You're on your phone. Right, you're absolutely right. There you go. Everybody wakes up, they grab their phone and then you know, he's like, cut that out, man, he's like that. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you should be doing is either working on a dream journal or hydrating doing a various amount of other things other than moth to the flame. I need the pahone in my face, and that made a lot of sense to me. So I buy a sketch pad, I buy some mock is. Yeah, can the bed. But something dawned on me, just like the morning sun did that same day that I had that new dream journal by the bed, is that my dreams are always explicit. So if I'M gonna draw anything, it's probably not going to be uh safe for work, and I don't want people finding my my journal thinking, Jeez, this guy was a perv. Look at this dude. The hell's that you're on here? Asked the mouth. That's not right. That's kind of like letting out your most deepest, darkest, you know, secrets, the things nobody sees. Your like making an evidence of it for people to discover. It's like a murderer writing a diary, you know. Well, well, I wouldn't go that far. It's not a manifesto, but yeah, I mean I realized my dreams are not a family friendly every night. Is this problem? Should I get get this addressed? No, man, I think you know you can't help what's in your head. I maybe, maybe some therapy, all right, but other than that, yeah, you can't really feel bad about the thoughts that come into your head. That's one thing I've learned from therapy is like you're not responsible for your thoughts, you're responsible for how you act on them. So yeah, so, as long as you're not just going around and asking people to go ask mouth. Yeah, you know, with them. Excuse me, I had a dream last night about this certain type of Falacio would you be interested in looking at my dream journal? No, but I mean, Hey, doc, you know. Um, so I have dirty dreams like every night. Is that okay? That's that's something you really want to breach with a physician right out of the jump. there. Oh Hi, how are you here for therapy? Did you have some traumatic childhood? Did you have well, you know, that's all fine and Dandy, but first thing first. Uh, you know, I was having sex in the Sahara last night. There was a helicopter, a whole lot of juice. Yeah, so my dream journal is empty. Oh Man, you just haven't even gone there yet. I'm glad you asked what kind of juice when I said, oh, a lot of juice. That's all right, man. Juice is juice, as a personal juice is juice, juice. Ay. So, yeah, you don't have a Dream Journal, do you? Do you chronicle your sleep or your whatever happens while your eyes are shut? I don't, but that's a fascinating idea. It's funny you say that, because this morning I woke up after having like a really crazy dream. Um, I don't often anymore. Now that I've been off the dope. I haven't had like a drug dream and a well, like that's the thing that plagues people that are getting off of addictive drugs is that you start having dreams like again, you're not responsible for what your mind does. You're responsible for what you do, you know, with it. So I would have dreams like that all the time when I first got off heroin and like. And it was always some dream where you can't get the drug into your...

...body, like you'll have a needle and it keeps breaking right as you like put it to your a skin, or or somebody keeps knocking on the door and like interrupting you and you can't get it done, or something goes wrong, like your dealer is late and he keeps it. You know, there's always some reason to not get high in your dream. The last night, you know, years after I used really last time, I like put it in like I was able to actually put it in my arm. I don't remember feeling high from it, but I remember when I woke up I was fascinated that I was actually able Arrow. was there a camel there? You know, that came out of left field. By the way, I've never had a dream. I was being very honest about the whole. Like, Dude, I'm a hornball. I don't know why. Every night I gotta have something going on, but the camel and the juice and the desert was for the show only. Well, I don't know, I just thought you were getting real, like, you know, like I chose to do just. Well, yeah, I know you did, and that's some intense stuff. You know what I mean. I'm an intense guy. You are, this is true. But how how often do you have dirty dreams? You have the drug dreams? M Hmmm, probably about I don't know, like and I honestly couldn't tell you my dreams. So there is something wrong with me. Yes, you definitely need therapy. Well, there's UH, people who need therapy everywhere. There are people with problems everywhere. Uh. And Nate, you've recently been scouring the Internet, because you're good like that. You were looking around. I just dropped something, because I am fleet of nothing. I don't know why. I just had to hell that hell. Okay, man, I've got noises happening in my room too. Like you hear? You heard my thing fall? Okay, okay, all right. Did you hear my trucks going by out? No, I can't control. No, I did not know. You can't control it's what you do about it. That's right. So, anyway, let's get back on track here. I just like the fact that his yell like I dropped something. Yeah, I'm in the restaurant. I dropped some saw my God, everybody, I dropped sense hold. We don't give us ship. Yeah, yeah, I don't know why. But Anyway, back to the thing, the task at hand here. Um, you know, you've had some trouble with the law, Um, and the police are there to help, or they're supposed to be there to help. But in some cases, what? In some cases they can be a little difficult to work with, and you found some interesting nine one one stuff. What do you say? We discussed that. Sure, Dave, let's start this new segment. Segment, baby, I'm falling and I can't get all right. I mean really, who doesn't love a good nine one one call to uh, you know, enjoy someone else's misery? And it seems here that you find a doozy out of Ohio, a place that I have never been. Um, I don't know how much set up I should really put into this. Maybe I should just start the nine one one call. I think it speaks for itself. Okay, all right, well, let's let's go ahead with that right now. Sharonvill police. Hi, I need to do a complaint about to Sharon Ville cops. They stole much. You can lead last night. Okay, let me have you talked to a supervisor. Alright, just moment. Hello. Hi, is this a sheriff? This is sergeant drown, some of the Sharonvill police. Can I help you? I had two cops come here last night and wee and I want it back. Yeah, he wants this guy, he really wants it back, because it's not just his weed, it's his effing...

...weed. I like how his face, it sounds like keeps hitting the phone buttons right when he says the word Fuck. Yeah, that's convenient. That is convenient indeed, but I mean that's you know, you normally my house is on fire. Yeah, I'm being robbed right. This guy he just wants his effing weed. So, yeah, that's that's something else indeed. But he's not done. No, not not by a long shot. What what address are you talking about? I was I was staying at a hotel last night at the night at the time my wife had some problem there to call him and my wife had my weed and their purse and the mother talks took it. It was only like four grams, but it was really good and weed. Well, in contrast, is stealing bad weed. They stole my shake, nate. It must have been good weed. I think he still had a little because he was like stuttering there. He's like I was staying at the hotel at at the night at the time. But I guess it's intimidating to call it cops to complain about stolen. Well, no, I mean realistically, right, let's just get this out of the way. I mean, this is obviously not a smart man. Sure it shouldn't be intimidating to call it shouldn't be something you call about period. I mean really think about that. Right. That the balls on this guy. And then what I liked in particular was he stressed he was at a hotel. We all know it was not a hotel. It was most definitely something that started with an M, a motel. He was most likely at the red roof in Um to start to him is definitely uh, four or five star for you know, in his mind put it that way. But the COPS showed up and took his mother effing weed. So, and that's good stuff. Four grams. I I don't know Um metrics. How much is four grams? Grams, a little over an eighth. Three. Okay, you're still speaking in numbers. Can you compare it to, say, something that weighs something? So I know eight an eighth. The weed kind of looks like a cigar in the bottom of a bag like that size. I would say it weighs about as much as a small sack of sand. Pretty small. I bet sand is heavier than we we it's pretty fluffy. Maybe maybe he'll explain more as we continue on here with the call and the mother. They just took it and from what I know, a hundred grahams is cool, right, or am I wrong? You are wrong. I'm wrong. What do you mean? But do you think it's cool? Where did you get that? What are you talking about? A hundred grams is legal. Am I wrong? No, it's not. What County is this? This isn't Hamilton County. Okay, he forgot where he was. What County is it? What is going on here? Where am I? UH, yeah, he's technically right in one regard. Hundred Grahams is cool. They may not be legal, but it's cool. It's definitely pretty cool. Uh Yeah, so, you know, I don't know. I like how in the police officer was. He he didt know what was up. It's like, Hey, do you think it's cool to they give me a weird scenario here. would be something that you think would be cool that no one else would think was hip? Um, I don't know if putting my penis on the hot stove. Oh Really? So, Mr Officer, do you think putting my penis on the hot stove is a cool thing? Are Wrong? Oh okay, so keep my extremities away from hot objects. That probably that's legal, as long as it's my own. Okay, Mr Officer. Sir, is it legal to burn my penis on the no, no, no, no, no, it's not legal. Sorry, read that that criminal code again. Yeah, I get back to that, because this guy knows the law, this caller. That's the other thing he's he's freaking Johnny Cochrane over here, so let's hear more about his law degree. All right, Tammuke County, a hundred grahams is legal. Okay, well, I mean it's not. I'm just here to tell you that it's not. What do you mean...

...it's not? Dude, where you've been the past two months? Two months ago it got passed. A Hundred Grahams. You guys don't take it. I know I'm right here, Dude. Don't try to talk to me like dumb. Yeah, he's not dumb. This is definitely not a dumb man. He he knows because he voted for it. Yeah, yeah, he definitely has his eye voted in. I forget the name of the county, but he's got the sticker. He said Hamilton's county. Hamilton saw the play. Yeah, I don't know. I think it's probably a case of like it was past but maybe it wasn't yet enacted. Like I remember when weed was legalized here in Massachusetts, it like took a while, you know, before everything went through and the cops actually had to follow that lot. Like it gets passed and there's like a whole process before they change all the books and the fucking cops know how to handle it. So he might be right, but I think the cops word probably means a little more and even if it doesn't in reality, like according to the cop and being able to bust you, the cops point of view matters more. Well, yeah, I mean, will it hold up in court? We don't know, because it was past two months ago. Man. Yeah, you know, I think this guy is funny. He's gotten so angry now because really, you know, and it's weird that we're only siding with a cop on this. Yeah, I know, that's that never happens. But yeah, I know, but I mean he's barely saying anything and this guy is just fucking losing his goddamn mind. If you'd like to come down and follow a complaint against these officers, you can do it, and I want my feedback. It was only fourth gram and it happened at like two thirty last night. Did those mother returning any weeds? Did they say any weed or I guarantee they put it right in their pockets? Okay, well, I'll take this as far as you want to go. If you think you're gonna me around with this Pul Dude, you're wrong. I'm just gonna go over your head. I want my mother freedback. They did turn it in. Did they any cops turning anything? WED last fight about two thirt three am. I don't see. If they didn't, they stole my I knows the law right. Okay, so he knows his rights to thirty three Am. He's very specific about the time as well. It sounds like maybe he doesn't know his rights as well. Oh really, maybe I don't know, Dude. Also, the COPS says like, why don't you come down and file a complaint? I fell for that one time. Did you really? Well, I got arrested and when it happened, they like they pulled me over, arrested me and they took a hundred dollars out of my car. They had nothing to do with what I was getting arrested for. It was just my money. I just got of the a t M. I even had the receipt from the a t m like with it, and Dude, they never gave it back. I bailed out and I called to complain like three different times over the next day or two because, especially at the time, I was I was a junkie and I that hundred bucks was like everything to me. YEA, and they finally said come down and claim it. They like called me out of the blue. We're like hey, were you the one calling about that hundred bucks? I'm like yeah, they're like Oh, come down, dude, I went down there immediately, they cuffed me up and they like added this other charge that they figured they could add on all of a sudden, like it was a total ruse to get me to just walk in and and all of a sudden I needed another like two hundred dollars for bail. Like not only did I not get the hundred. So, yeah, were you the one who had his weed stolen a two thirty three am last night at the hotel? Yeah, why don't you come down here and pick out that weed? We also have a yacht for you if you're interesting. Oh really, you let me come down and get there right now. Right. The Guy was smart enough, like or. The COP was nice enough, even if he did take the weed, to let the guy go and or and then he calls and the cops like, okay, why don't you come down here? I bet they would arrest him right there. They'd be like, all right now, we are arresting you. Yeah. Well, here's the thing. I don't think he was there. We're gonna hear a little bit more about that, but his wife, yeah, is the one who had the weed seized. So the plot does in fact thicken, you know,...

...and if you're not going to help me out, I'm gonna go over your head. Can you stop talking for a second? Okay, what? What hotel were you at? I know that that's too funny. Can you stop talking for a second? What? Yeah, so, excuse me, sir, I believe that we was actually taking a two four am. What? Yeah, exactly. You, you're him, you're with it. Ducka Ducka Ducka Duck. So, yeah, that makes me laugh. Can you please stop talking for a second? And we did. We did this nice pause. It was in fact a gap. So, uh, let's not put a gap in this and keep hearing the clip. Okay, I don't know. Some hotel and Shared Ville, but I woke up in the morning. I asked my wife where my mother read was and she said the cops came and took it. It was only four grams, but it was good. Stole it. So the police officers took it from your wife. Yeah, my wife said to them, she said in them no, hundred grahams is legal, and they said and they kind of laughed, you know, tell us to the judge. Try of okay, what's your wife's name? O, Hey, I'm not trying to get us all this information out, man. Just okay, the names of the participants. That's a little bit too much information, but he's got the time stamps, he's got the hotel or motel. He knows exactly where and what time these things happened. But as far as her name, it's uh, George Glass. That's what it is. So you now have the solution to the dilemma, though I think the Dude's wife definitely smoked that week and ye and then told the guys some the story about the cops taking it and she didn't think he'd call her bluff. Maybe, and he's calling the cops now. You know she's probably in the room trying not to laugh while he's doing it. So I don't know. You think? You think this guy was even there? It sounds like he wasn't even there. No, he wasn't. That's what I'm trying to tell you. He's he's telling the cop this stuff, but he didn't really know what's going on. The wife was the one who was hanging around and apparently the cops get called for something else, searched the purse and took the weed. Or, like you said, maybe she smoked it with somebody else. Or maybe there's a third option. Maybe none of this happened and this is just some weird dude trying a weird ploy to like get free weed from cops, like he called. I bet the cops grab four grams from somebody last night. Maybe if I just rolled the dice and see if I luck out, maybe they'll give me some free pot. And he's trying it with different, different amounts of weed, with different police stations around the state. That would be he's I mean this guy. We've already questioned his intelligence, but that would be the worst thing. You know, we've heard, uh, and you've told me about like taking stuff from his story and then returning it without a receipt. Yeah, that was like a scam or whatever, but calling up police officers Viet N, I. One one, to try to find small amounts of weed to claim would definitely be a goofy, goofy thing to do, in my humble opinion. If it works, though, that's a really great story. A little feather in his cap, you know. Yeah, I guess. Uh, actually, I just sounded like the guy. I was like, yeah, so disagree with everything I say, please. All Right, I like this guy. Hey, man, can I borrow a gram, four grams a weed from you? Is Good stuff, right, all right, Hey, may, Mr Officer. That's some really good, uh, four grams of weeds. Get there, right, you are wrong. Oh No, Oh, fool bad. Well, I was tricked. Yeah, it was. Like I think most likely he's just a...

...burnout whose girl smoked his pot and gave him a bullshit story. I think that's pretty much what happens. Yeah, most likely here, I mean now he's an internet sensation. He's uh, he's you know. You know what this reminds me of kind of and it bothers me to no end. Have you seen these videos that are circulating now on social media about a manual the EMU? I think he's an EMU. He is some kind of big bird. You have not seen these? Huh, manual them or a manual the big bird? Yeah, he's like a big black I I as assumed he was an EMU, but I think, probably think all birds are an EMU. Hey, it's a Pigeoni has an EMU, very small one, as a small EMU, but anyway, I guess. Just to give you a quick summary, this one girl on a farm. She does these videos and the bird comes over and it's very fascinated with the camera and knocks it over, to the point now she keeps making multiple videos about the bird. The bird is a sensation. He's taken off like hotcakes. Everybody loves the bird and she's getting hundreds of thousands of likes and views and everything else just because this bird likes to knock off the camera. So this is the RUB. This is the thing that bothers me the most is that you will live a life of successful existence. You will do wonderful things. Okay, that will go unnoticed by society at large. That's fine. You're not looking for recognition. You know, you're not a rock star poet or someone else. Or actually poets probably getting no recognition either. But anyway, someone of significance to the point where people will mourn you're passing. But last someday this bird will die. This bird will go to the great big egg in the sky. That'd be weird, back into the egg, but anyway it's gonna go somewhere and there will be tributes on entertainment tonight or wherever, or it's gonna be an article in a newspaper. A manually EMU who brought so much joy and happiness to people for his fifteen minutes of fame back in two has died, and that fucking bird is gonna get more recognition than an honest, hardworking person who does their has to put on their pants every day, go to work and provide for their family. That's right. Yeah, the EMU IS gonna get more recognition than the woman who paid for the fucking camera. Probably, yeah, I bet you, I bet you. That's I feel like I'm saying, yeah, like this guy. Now, Ike, I can't stop. It's addicting. Sorry, I'm I'm gonna have dreams about it, like you and your dreams, and wake up in the middle of the night, you know. Yeah, Oh, yeah, Jesus, that's gonna Hunt my my nightmares exactly. Hey, Mr Ohio, the cups on my week got. Did you hear about a manual the EMU? Yeah, you're like nate, ain't you? Yeah, yeah, yeah, you are. So now that we've made fun of other members of this wonderful, glorious country of ours, specifically from Ohio, for, you know, freaking out over their dope, maybe we can talk about some more dopey things and move on here. Nate, I know you had something on your agenda. Yeah, yeah, yeah, there were some news stories that I had heard recently on Fox News and writing media. That's painful. What are you doing? Listen to the Fox News? You are wrong. Not doing it intentionally, but I like to stay abreast of what they're saying over there. You know, sure, okay, you're keeping up with the enemy. Yeah, well, you know, I just I try to stay open minded. Okay, I don't. You know, Fox News tells people to not listen to any other news but them. I don't want to just listen to the news I'm listening to. I want to listen to everything and kind of make my own mind up. But the point is, what's going on over there at phone news? What's up? But News, phone news is uh is lionizing someone like Joe McCarthy. I'm I'm noticing. So when I was younger, I forget what great I was in. It's like junior high maybe, or high school. I did a report on the red scare back in the fifties and about how they ruined tons of people's lives because they called everyone a communist, anyone that had...

...any ties with suspected communism they blacklisted Um, like, they cleared out Hollywood athletes, like all kinds of people's lives were ruined, and I thought the lessons of history was that, like the red scare was a stupid mistake and it needlessly ruined people's lives. Yeah, of course, that's what I remember, the whole ordeal, right, and that Joe McCarthy, Senator Joe McCarthy, who basically spearheaded the whole thing. That that the the lesson was that he was a psychopath man. Yeah, and he died a paranoid wreck, like look up how he died. He was like he had all these paranoid delusions. He died like alone and crazy. But yeah, like, I mean my father listens to or watches Fox News and stuff, and I heard my father like making some comment about Joe McCarthy and how we need we need a new Joe McCarthy, and he he even used term like we we love Tail Gunner Joe. He called him right like and to me I'm like that must have been something Sean Hannity said, like that sounds like a like one of his little little quips. You know, your father is just parenting, which seems to be the thing. Everybody parents what they hear Fox News. So tail gunner to me almost sounds like a homosexual thing. I swear to guns in any of your dreams. Yeah, maybe it is. It's a little tail gunning. Yeah, that sounds like a nice little euphemism. That's the way, the way I just said it sounds that way. Tail Til gunning. You want a Tailgun later? Oh you bet. I got a Bab. What do you say this Tailgun? Get a towel, keep it close by, but juicy. Well, I was just thinking about how, like history has we we learned these lessons and then enough time goes by and we forget them. Yeah, and all of a sudden we're repeating the whole history repeats itself thing. It's like it's really happening. And I was noticing the same thing with like the satanic panic thing, like didn't, do you remember the eighties when we were younger and everything was like heavy metal bands are backmasking, you know, telling people to kill themselves, commit that suicide, suicide solution, Baybay. Yeah, they were like all the Um. Yeah, the West Memphis, three these kids that were arrested for a murder because they wore black and had long hair and listen to like heavy metal music with devil imagery, and there was literally, yeah, like no evidence except other people's words saying you know, Oh, yeah, that person told me he did the murder. Like you haven't watched it, but the new season of stranger things deals with D and D. same thing and the demonizing. Yeah, your kids are into Dn d. They were into Satan. Yeah, it's perfect. That's perfect example. Um, and I'm not saying that there's news stories about satanism everywhere right now. It's not that to that extent. But my point was I thought that, like the general outlook was that, like if you're too Christian and like crazy about that leart of thing where you're worried about that stuff, like like a real satanist doesn't sacrifice things, or like like the actual Church of Satan doesn't believe in any gods. They do it as a reaction to Christianity, because Christianity has overstepped and is involved in all our areas. Like, I don't know, I don't want to go off on too much of it, I am man, but I'm Oh all into the Satanists. Nate, you are bad. You're very, very bad. Well, I just mean that, like when religious people get too involved in the law and all this stuff like that was the problem with the West...

Memphis three and all those things, was that the D A and the fucking judge and the jury where all Super Christians. Was Super Christian area. So these kids look different and they were automatically judged, of course. And now we have the government being overtaken by people who want to make laws based on their religion and they don't remember the fact that our country isn't supposed to have an established state religion. That's in the first amendment. The establishment clause of this First Amendment is that we are not to establish a state religion, like we have freedom of religion as well as freedom from religion. Should we not choose a religion like if we want to not have one? And yet now you know not. Again, we could go off on political tirades, but we have the fucking we have schools that are now able to get public funding even though they're religious schools, which shouldn't APP and their money shouldn't be going to teach kids religious points of view. And that was like our super conservative Supreme Court has done that. Now they're allowing these schools to get funding that shouldn't be going to them, unless, unless they want to give it to Muslim schools too, you know, and things like that, and it has to give it to everyone. But they're not a religion. Nate, those Muslims are bad. They're not the right religion. Exactly. That's the whole thing here. Everybody, uh, you can remember. It's only right if it's why? That's that's why it is. You got to be from some ultra conservative state, have a lot of guns amby. Why? Right, but, and that's dude, it's fucking crazy. Like it is crazy. It's nuts. It's I'm still in shock about when you let off this whole thing about the tail gunning. Oh, that's tail going to Joe. Yeah, that the fact that Joe McCarthy now is heralded as some sort of hero. Yeah, when he was obviously just a misguided nut job. He was like, Oh, well, what am I gonna do? I gotta get my name in the papers. Oh, everybody's a communist, everybody, you know. It's just I do want to get tailgunning trending as a, you know, sexual thing. I would like to Yeh Hashtag tail gunning. I would like to hear some creative ways of making tailgunning work and what it's really all about. Use Your imaginations. You know it's gonna be. It's gonna be a porn hub category. Now your brain is a canvas eager to to accept some paint. I might use it my dream journal. That might be the first entry when I might dream up tail gunning would be. I already said or suggested. You need a BIB, so you know, let's let's start there. But yeah, it's just, I don't know, man, that the world's out of whack, something, something's UH, I don't know, but when is the world ever been right as rain? You know what I mean, is when has never been a peace and love and Idyllic Society that we live in? It just it's never happened. We're too busy arguing with each other. You can't, except even on earth, because that would be pleasurable for one group, not the other, because someone always has to enjoy other people's misery, as we just did by listening to a nine one one call. You know what I mean, like it's just the way it is. So we're fine. Do we're doomed. But I want to say, though, that like the thing is, we're at a point like I just felt like we had. I don't know, maybe it's the progressive in me, but I feel like we're moving into an area where we understand that, like, as we evolve further, I feel like we should evolve away from these points of view. Maybe that's me not being patient with other points of view just the same way, but like I feel like, don't we know now that these fairy tales aren't sucking real, like don't we have science and all these things and like, and I don't know, without getting too far into it, about the Supreme Court overturning Rovers's way, it's the same thing. Like you're forcing other people to abide by your religious views. Like...

...there's no non religious reason to restrict abortion access. Like nobody is wilfully going and getting an abortion because they want to kill a child. Like when they talk about, Oh, they allow people to have an abortion at eight, nine months, it's like yeah, but nobody's doing that unless, like the baby's gonna die or the mother's gonna die. Like nobody's doing it like waiting that long on purpose, like you know what I mean. Like that's like three percent, I believe of a abortion, of abortion. Excuse me, and I don't know, but, like I don't want to get into a whole political screed here, but you already have. That's what I'm trying to tell you. You did. Religion is wacky. It's out of order. That's what it is. The problem is it shouldn't be injected into our politics. It shouldn't have any uh sense in our lives, unless we should choose so right, because that's the whole point is, you're right to choose. We're talking about row versus weight. I'm a man, I have no say in a woman's body. I get no right to regulate what a woman can you can't, do or body. I have no opinion on the matter. You want to go have an abortion here or there, whatever, do whatever the funk you want, because, you know what, I don't have to carry that baby. I don't. But you've got a bunch of people who say, well, this is I mean we're talking about Texas earlier and how I said Dallas as much like anywhere else, but hotter. We'll drive a little farther south and you start seeing all the billboards and the mega churches and everything else like that. You Know Oh, at this many weeks, a baby has fingernails. Okay, like I give a ship. Yeah, about the baby's forming its eyes and everything else. So it's like it must have a soul. Yeah, so you know what I mean. There's this proh sorry, Anti Anti abortionists already had their message out there and maybe they've influenced some people who said, you know what, I am maybe religious and I've gonna think my h stance on this, because I don't want to. I don't want to subject H to my my soul to eternal damnation. Okay, that's you. That's great. That's what you wanted to do. I don't give a ship. Don't judge anybody else because they have something else going on in their lives and we shouldn't mandate that some one can or cannot do anything right. But then here's the gray area, here's where someone's gonna hit you right in the Julie's. Well, the why the funk you're making me wear a mask? If I don't want to wear a mask, I don't have to wear a mask. And then they say, well, you don't have to wear it in public, but in a private business. Well, this is America, this is every private business is freaking they're choking my rights to death. That's what they is. Well, I'm sure there are businesses that aren't require require to wear man, I know if I went into a restaurant and a good dude had a beer, a good the good a dude had a beard the size of fucking uh, you know, Tim Buck two, hanging from his Chinny Chin Gin. I prefer if he had a beard guard on. Imagine him saying, you know, uh, this is encroaching on my rights to have a beard. Right. You know, would you would? That same person says, Oh, Dr Thought, she is fucking H he's Satan. That's what he is. If you went in and wanted a freaking Hogi you wanted a subway sandway Hich and, uh, you know, someone's I'm trying to think of someone with a beard. Grizzly Adams is there putting your your freaking sandwich together. Would you say, excuse me, sir, could you please put a beard guard on? Of course they would. They don't want the freaking pubbies in their beard. I mean what? What in their sandwich? Right? Maybe they want pubbies in their beard. I don't know, I'll dream that up tonight, maybe their tail donners. Dude, that's tail kind. Put some pubbies in my beard, baby, need I need it. That's the thing, man, religion is it's just, it's too much, and I we could keep going to a blue in the face, and we will, because we have a show with no limit on how long we're gonna record for. We've been on this the air now for years and we got no signs of slowing down. So biggety, Bam, biggety boom. I think most people agree to me. Agree with me that we have the right to say whatever we want to say, when we want to say it. Yeah, that's also the first amendments. There we go, thank Yo. I think the a lot of these right wingers are so excited about the an amendment that they skip over that whole establishment clause. Yeah,...

...and we want to go to have our goons, gonna have our guns. That's that's something always gets me is like the second amendment. We're talking about guns, and you know people who made the argument, which you know I understand a little bit, that when they enacted this, they weren't automatic rifles, they weren't mass weapons destruction whatever must they were right exactly it took fifty minutes to load the damn thing right. But the same thing comes now with freedom of speech because people want to attack. Okay, well, social media, right, people can say whatever they want to say. There was Devin Nunez because there was a a parody account of him that he got upset about. He says they don't have the right to say certain things. So I guess it's all based on your perspective. If you're feeling violated or attacked, your opinion on certain things might change. But there we go. Technology is UH. We are often amazed that technology has changed so much in thirty years, U uh, since we were children. We can't get over it. Imagine, from when the Constitution was written, in the bill of rights and every other damn thing, these old people with wooden teeth and wigs on we're trying to protect. So shouldn't things be updated? Shouldn't things shouldn't this be an ever evolving contract with America? Right, the constitution? It's a yeah, exactly, it's it's a growing document. No, it's not, it's not. It's a fucking flag in the goddamn saying. That's what it is. It's like. Well, that says we can have guns, doesn't say what kind of guns, doesn't say what kind you know. It's just it's just crazy. So yeah, let's talking about something else. I'm gonna have a conniption. I'm fine with that, man. Like I said, I didn't want to get on the whole thing competitions. You got me into this, now get me out of it. Take me here, I will. Let me. Let me get start on my nates notes. Well, before you do that, let me get myself out of here because there's something I want to bring up that I forgot to mention, and it actually it has to do with technology, to which I was just ranting and raving about. Do you have instagram? You Use instagram? Yes, instagram should be investigated immediately. There is a hovering problem for instagram. Uh, now, we all know, and I'm the kind of person when I have my phone out, I turn off the microphone, I turn off cameras, because people want to spy on you, even if you think there's nothing to spy over your data. They sell it, doesn't matter what it is, is, junk data, doesn't matter. They take it. They, you know, make money off of it. You get nothing. Well, something I found interesting about instagram is that if you scroll and should you hover over something, the next thing you know, the rest of the feed is going to be inundated with that kind of content, which can potentially be very, very dangerous. Now, I don't know this from personal experi areas, but just for example's sake, let's say you happen to find some photos about Asian seniors, disabled Asian seniors with a foot fetish. Sure, next thing you know it was this. Oh that's Freaky, your whole feet. It's gonna be nothing but people in wheelchairs showing you Pacific islanders with their feet. Yeah, well, like I said, I don't know. I just just random. I'm nervous because I was looking at tailgunning seniors myself. TAILGUNNING is yet to be defined. So don't lie to yourself, don't lie to our audience. But but you get my drift here right. If you see a girl or so instagram model, it's going on here. Look at those, uh, those, you know whatever. Sorry, Fun Bat, thanks for you know what. You pick up the slack. That's what you do. I was gonna say something like sweater cannon or something, but which is more tasteful? Yeah,...

...totally appropriate. Here we go. But yeah, should you look at that for a second? Next thing you know. So you better be careful if you're next to your significant other, earth spouse, and you scroll, because he's gonna say, Hey, how can you get all this weird fetish stuff popping up on your your feet? That's good to see, algorithm baby. Wow, David's out looking out for us. I am I am a good looker, literally and figuratively. I am quite Dapper, enhansome, but I mean seriously.

Dug Up your lps in time for Nate No.

I remember being ten or eleven years old and hearing ice, ice baby by vanilla ice for the first time. Now that Song has head some ups and downs over the years. It went from huge hit to cheesy embarrassment to another sighted example of white people capitalizing on a medium created by black people. It seems to have settled somewhere around the level of endearing yet kitchy classic that gets played by Wedding djs. But in when I was first hearing it, it was just the hot new single on MTV. I thought it was pretty cool, but then I remember my father coming in and saying something like Oh, listen, another shitty rap song stealing music from someone else. I didn't know he was talking about. The video said it was by vanilla ice, of course. Eventually I saw some EMPTV news report about how the guys from queen were suing vanillies for using a sample of their music without giving them credit. It was the first time I remember hearing the words sample in relation to music production. I thought samples were the little bits of food they handed out at grocery stores. Not long afterwards, I remember hearing that MC Hammer's song you can't touch this was basically just him wrapping over a song by some weird seventies funk singer named Rick James. Sampling was everywhere. Now. My father's take on the practice of sampling and music is not uncommon, especially in his generation, who grew up on Hendrix and the Beatles and Bob Dylan. Hell, the closest thing to a sampler that existed back then was maybe a Mellotron, which is basically a keyboard that plays actual tiny lengths of tape. When you press the keys, there would be prerecorded no on each tape, recorded from actual flutes or stringed instruments. The Beatles Song Strawberry Fields is a good example of a Mellotron being utilized. Now that kind of sampling is a far cry from ice ized baby using that Queen Riff, but it is technically still sampling. Ship. You could be a piano player and get the sound of a cello without having to learn to play the damn cello. Where was the outrage over that? Anyway, over the years there have been a lot of artists from varied stylistic backgrounds that have employed samples in varying degrees. There were experimental composers like Stockhausen and Pierre Schaefer who created music out of found sounds and recorded snippets as early as the nineteen forties. After the Mellotron, there was the fairlight synthesizer in the nineteen seventies, whose creators actually coined the term sampling. The fair light allowed the user to record their own clips and play them back on a standard piano style keyboard, where the Melotron came preloaded with limited sounds, this more or less opened the doors for the whole modern era of samplers, which have come into broad use in all types of modern music. The practice in hip hop of rapping over existing music didn't start with samplers, though. Hip Hop began in community dance halls where an m C would just freestyle over any disco record the DJ happened to be playing. Sure, eventually producers started creating original music for rappers, but think about it. Even the earliest massive hip hop single, rappers delight by the Sugar Hill Gang, was just rhymed over the music from good times by Chic and actually DUB reggae artists in Jamaica like Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby were making quote rhythms to sing over out of existing reggae songs as early as the sixties. Over the years,...

...of course, many artists who wrote the original music sampled in hip hop have sued over unauthorized use of their work. It's often an expensive undertaking to clear samples ahead of time. Savvy producers sometimes pick super obscure source material or they distort the original track in order to slip it through unnoticed. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Nowadays, when an artist like Kanye West puts a recognizable sample in a song, it's kind of just another version of flexing their wealth, like an ornate stage show or a giant diamond medallion. Personally, I see sampling as an exciting medium. I think it's a unique listening experience to hear a familiar song, or just a clip of a familiar song, reworked into something new. I mean APP is primarily about lyrical flow and vocal delivery anyway. There are great producers, however, and the best of them do more than just play a bare bones clip of an existing track. And of course, sampling is used in all kinds of music, not just hip hop. I listen to a lot of industrial music that samples clips from movies or TV shows. There's a lot of great electronic artists, like the ORB in the future sound of London, who create dance music and ambient sound clauses from samples of music and films of all kinds. Dj Shadows Classic Album End Introducing was composed entirely of samples from other artists records and it's on rolling stones list of the five greatest records of all time. I can understand people's resistance to the practice, especially those who don't play music themselves. If you're an average Rick James Fan, you might see MC hammer as lazily capitalizing on another artist's creativity. But when you experiment with making music and you find a clever way to work in a piece of found audio, a police siren, a snippet of dialogue from an old episode of twilight zone, even a clip from an old soul song, it can open up all kinds of possibilities. I'm not going to convince anyone that they should like Vanillis. I don't even like Vanillis. But if you are a little open minded about hearing what can be done with the art form of sampling. Check out some DJ shadow that aforementioned album of his end introducing is popular for a reason. Check it out, even if you hate hip hop. It's an instrumental album. There are no vocals, just really cool songs, and collage is made from samples. Music is wonderful because you can make it from anything, from banging on a rock too, plucking strings on the harp too looping clips of someone talking or scratching a record. You can make noise with it. There's a musician using it and there's also an audience to appreciate it. See that we uh, we get some samples of our own around here, isn't that right? Mr I call and I won't want to find my stolen weed. Yeah, all right, what sow appropriate, very appropriate, I must confess, nate, that was very good. I mean, when you talk about the ice, ice baby thing, I that was pretty blatant. I can see why he in fact got sued. I remember there was a p diddy. Didn't he use every breath of yeah, well, yeah, so that was just a small there was led Zeppelin in the one he did from the Godzilla soundtrack. Yep, Yep. So I don't know how much he gets hate me now, but if you can pay it, don't ask formission. There you go. Just just fucking steal it all all you want. That's all you have to...

...do. He did. He's one of those that I was talking about when I said there are some shitty ones who just play the track and put a beat over it. Really like he's not a good example of someone who uses it cleverly. But, but, just I also wanted to say quickly I was writing that before we planned on using samples and whatnot in this episode. Like Oh what, what samples? I I just happened to be a wizard. I can just summon sounds from my magic wand. Oh No, Mr Police officer, I stand corrected. I am in fact using a sampler. So yes, but I'm a musician now, according to Nate's peace could be I got two rocks clanging them together, Clint, clank. Long out there. That will listen to it, and hopefully people are still listening right now. Yeah, appreciate, appreciate the effort I put into pre programming buttons to make noises. So yeah, anyway, nate, nice piece, I I but I did want to say on it, I guess in my closing of the whole thing. I don't know anybody who's just sitting there. I like your dad did back in the day, but I was gonna say, uh, I suppose I would if I heard something sampled from that. Maybe I hold precious for my generation being used now just a sample these cheap sons of bitches, but it's not something I think about a daily basis. You Go, modern music has gone to hell in a handbasket because I use all those samplers. You know what I mean? Yeah, maybe are those people? There's a lot of them. Listen to country. To bring it back to the beginning of our episode, really is this country is doing a samples now? No, no, no, I just mean that I feel like a lot of people I know that listen to country. That's one of the problems they have with wrap is that they're like they're just talking over somebody else's music. I don't mean I guess maybe that's that's prejudicial or something. I feel like I've heard it a lot in my rural area of Massachusetts. You know, the rural area that's all behind the Supreme Court. I love what they're doing up there and that they're building. They got them judges in. I wonder if they were underwear under them their robes. I wouldn't Stum hot outside. Now I'm doing all the callbacks. You see that. So, yeah, all right. Well, I think that does it for this Salacious, Ly Sexual and stupendous episode of the selling out show. So, as I closed every show, I do want to thank the audience. Virtual hugs to each and every one of you. We appreciate your patronage beyond words, I think. Well, I mean I I was waiting for NAT to chime in like yeah, me too, but he was of course, he was very quiet there. He's like fuck them kids, fuck them. Uh. Anyway. Uh, yeah, that was it's been a fun episode and I appreciate you taking the time to talk to me. Nate. You're appreciate Nice Guy. Yeah, you're a peach. If you're you're a wonderful human being yourself. Thank you. Flattery is part of tailgunning. Yeah, just so you know, we're making this up on the fly. So that's the other thing. If you guys do have any ideas for tail gunning, I really want to hear you, so please reach out. Um, okay, I guess. With all that being said, I am Dave, that is nate, and this has been the selling out show. Why? God, me, sick, gunning escape.
